JaxTHRIVE

Open Opportunity

About

JaxTHRIVE is a youth-led, non-profit organization with a mission to educate and inspire refugee and low income children. For this spring of 2023, we are offering in person (for volunteers in the Jacksonville, FL area) and virtual mentoring/tutoring opportunities to either help students with their homework or help the student with reading or math. We are asking mentors to commit to at least one hour each week during a time that is convenient to the tutor and student.

How does the program work?

Each volunteer must commit to meeting with their mentee for 1 hour per week for the duration of the academic year, attend a virtual orientation and training, and provide the program director with feedback throughout the term. Tutoring is usually done in the evenings (sometime between 5 and 9pm)

As a mentor, you will:

  • Tutor your student at least once each week
  • hone your cross-cultural skills
  • expand your global network by meeting new people and making new friends
  • take on a leadership role
  • prepare for your future career by gaining valuable resume-building experience
  • make a difference in someone’s life

To participate, you must:

  • volunteer for a minimum of 1 hour per week.
  • be fluent in both written and spoken English.
